An idea for a Celebration or Anniversary
Strolling back to the car one wintry December morning, I suddenly saw a couple of youngsters in a shop window completely absorbed in painting pottery. Being inquisitive, it was not long before I was inside this fascinating “coffee shop with a difference” and talking to the manageress. She eagerly explained all about the brilliant idea behind the All Fired Up Ceramics Café that has taken off throughout the UK. Here’s how their website explains it….
All Fired Up Ceramics Café offers a wide selection of high quality ceramics just waiting to be hand-painted by you. Our ceramics café is the perfect place for friends to meet, for families to enjoy time together and for everyone to be creative.
The concept is so practical and enables creative individual gifts to be crafted for family members. Investing part of one’s self in a gift is always a great idea. Look out for them as you travel and enjoy a cup of coffee there – maybe even take time to bring joy and pleasure to someone you appreciate by buying a creative piece of artistic ceramics….
Have friends who regularly seek to design their own creative gifts and crafts. Sense this is an excellent matching of interests/hobbies and skills to produce very personal gifts. While preparing for exams in the UK, I used to switch-off in the evenings after studying and do some marquetry. The pictures crafted made excellent seasonal gifts.
Craft Fairs are special and I seek to stroll through them whenever I can. The creative-flair that radiates inside the exhibition is so inspiring. Can also lead to new connections and contacts. One of my favourite craft stores is in Hong Kong. You are most welcome to visit them there. Of course, you can buy online too.
